World A (I)
A list of locations that appear in Final Fantasy Legend III. Simply called The World.
Millennia ago a fearsome battle rage between beings who sought to become the ruler of a place known as Pureland. Unfortunately for the rest of the universe, the Purelanders were immortal. But rather than causing them to give up the fight, this little fact actually seemed to spur them on to create new and powerful weapons and magic attacks. The warring grew so violent that shock waves began disturbing neighboring dimensions, eroding the very beaches of time itself. The battle was spreading beyond the Pureland space-time continuum!
Pounded by these shock waves and fearing the loss of his own Universe, Sol, the Ruler of the World, built the Talon, a space-time battle cruiser with a drive system so powerful it could outrace light, and navigate the pathways separating dimensions. Commanding this weapon, Sol finally managed to seal the Pureland warriors in their own burned-out dimension—but at a terrible cost.
Exhausted after his ordeal, Sol returned to his universe with one last task to perform. He divided the internal mechanisms of the Talon into 13 Units. Using his last once of energy, Sol simply willed the Units to various historical times and places on the World and Pureland. Having finished his work, Sol sank into a deep, deep slumber.
Many centuries have passed, and the warriors of Pureland have done the impossible—they have actually joined forces! Their purpose? To thank Sol for butting in on their business...
A crackling thunderclap resounded through time, announcing the arrival of the Pureland Water Entity shimmered with protective magical fields. So potent was the Purelanders' magic, that the colossal Water Entity was instantly visible to every generation that had inhabited—or would inhabit—the World.
As the trans-dimensional Entity began to flood the World's past, present and future with putrid water, it poured forth savage monsters without number. The level of the sea rose at a frightening pace. People fled inland. Monsters systematically sacked the towns of the World, as though searching for something...
Only the Elder of Dharm, a city tightly sealed from the water, knew what the monsters were after: the legendary battle cruiser, Talon. The Units of the Talon—wherever they were—would have to be found, and installed, before the Monsters could find them, and before the World was swallowed by the sea.
